The U.S. Chemical Safety Board will consider launching a larger investigation into the deadly Oklahoma rig explosion that claimed five lives on Monday.

 

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration will lead its own investigation of the natural gas well explosion, but the CSB typically only gets involved for larger or more deadly industrial disasters. The incident occurred at a drilling rig owned by Houston's Patterson-UTI Energy by Quinton, Okla.

 

 

"The CSB has sent two investigators to gather additional information in order to determine if the CSB will be pursuing a full investigation," said CSB spokeswoman Hillary Cohen.
